Build your smart device

… without learning a programming language.

Some of you might remember … the ones who came to the Cisco Partner Summit in Barcelona from 22-23. October 2014. Yes, the IoE Workshop “Be Creative with IoE: building a smart thing” where we were building a smart alarm clock.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf you are a student, it is probably hard to imagine that teachers can also work in a team to create something together. They did and this was the team composition:

  1. Manager – ensures the projects are implemented and that everybody is working 🙂
  2. Designer – design and construct the box
  3. Programmer – programs the software inside the boards
  4. Engineer – connect the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino, peripherals of I/O, wires

Great work, super fun and we are looking forward to IoE classrooms in the Cisco Networking Academy World.

Now we have a challenge of for everyone:

Impress Santa and get your present – Enter the #Xmashack Contest


Thanks to the Technical Field Team of the Cisco Networking Academy Bogdan Doinea, Marc Khayat, Serges Nanfack Fomekong, Eugene Morozov and Giuseppe Cinque and the creators of the cool tool Wyliodrinyou can build cars or robots that can move around while your smart device is being programmed – Alexandru Radovici, Ioana Culic, Ovidiu Stoica who were supporting the teams.

Cisco@WorldSkills 2013 in Leipzig

All about people
Report from Carsten Johnson
volunteers skill39volunteers WorldSkill Experts

WorldSkills is the bi-annual summit of vocational education and training. Like at the Olympic games national teams and more than 1000 participants compete with each other for gold medals. And it was a fascinating event. More than 200,000 visitors came to watch the 50+ competitions – among them 7 IT-related skills competitions.
Skill #39 is the NetAcad competition on IT Systems and Network Administration. 90 % of all competitors were NetAcad students. Asia led the top positions in the Skill #39 category, with Jason Soh from Singapore and Takuya Nishide from Japan taking home gold medals, and Hui-zhong Liu from Chinese Taipei with a bronze. A huge congratulation to the winners and all competitors who took place in the event! The best participant from the European Market region was Lukas Hubschmid from Switzerland (5th place). And: 2 out of three medal winners are active NetAcad students.

Industry partners of WorldSkills ran information booths in an area called “Discover Your Skill”. Young pupils from Germany and abroad received information about career chances in many professions. As the IT sector presenter Cisco took the responsibility to inform about the large variety of IT professions. The discover your skill booth was staffed with volunteers from a Networking Academy in Muelheim (an der Ruhr) in Germany. The Academy students did a great job in presenting the value of IT skills in interactive workshops on “Secure WLAN”, “Managing an Energy Grid” and ” Sports meet IT”. If you want to get some impressions on how the atmosphere at WorldSkills Leipzig was visit www.worldskillsleipzig2013.com or try out the facebook diary about the live at the information booth and in the competition area of Skill39 (IT Systems and Network Administration) at twitter under #ciscoatworldskills, on facebook: Networking Academy.

Cisco’s role as a sector presenter was made possible through a sponsorship of 70k from the budget of the German Public Sector team. Christian Korff is the executive sponsor from Cisco corporate.
During the WorldSkills event we can report a 1 on 1 meeting between the new country manager Oliver Tuszik and the Minister of Economic Affairs of Saxony, Steffen Morlok. Jackie Barker lead the Corporate affairs team and head many meetings with industry partners, gave presentations at international conferences and handed out the medals to the winner in skill #39. The Academy team was present with Bob Schoenherr, Julie Chrysler, Jutta Jerlich, Lourdes Nieto and Carsten Johnson.

Girls’Day in Berlin – 25. April 2013

Cisco and Telekom trainees working together for a successful future of the girls

For the sixth time in a row female students of the “Integrierten Sekundarschule Wolfgang Borchert“ school  from Berlin-Spandau came to the Cisco Office in Berlin to find out more about jobs and the work environment in the IT sector.  The Girls’ Day at Cisco started with a TelePresence Demo which was very interesting for the girls – everyone knows about Skype – but the girls directly wanted to know how much it would cost to have such a technology at home…

Carsten Johnson, who organized the Girls’ Day, welcomed the visitors. Before that they had a tour through a server room led by Thomas Gerneth.  Director transformational and Enterprise Accounts and also the father of two girls, Uwe Peter presented the company and explained the importance of that day and their future career choice to the girls. Afterwards Evelyn Feldhoff, Account Manager, demonstrated how the Internet works. This started with a little movie

Finally the girls had various workshops with trainees of Deutsche Telekom discussing subjects as “security in the Internet” or “cyber-bullying”.  Taking apart computers and putting them back together as well as practicing job interviews concluded the day.

Girls'Day 2013 Berlin     Girls'Day 2013 Berlin Girls’Day 2013 in Berlin

The students enjoyed their day and showed their interest to sign up for internships at Cisco and Deutsche Telekom.
The Girls’ Day was a lot of fun this year and we’re looking forward to the next year.
